Some big news with reports Midnight Oil
may reform for a one-off show.
Triple M music reporter Nui Te Koha said
the Aussie rock legends might get back together to perform at the Live Earth
concerts happening in Sydney next June.
"For Live Earth in June… It certainly
feels like the Oils are ramping up… Peter Garrett was at the Beat The Drum
concert in Sydney about a week ago," Nui told Triple M.
"[There are] definitely plans,
definitely talk for some sort of Midnight Oil action this year."
100 artists are due to perform at the
Live Earth concerts, which will take place over seven continents - China,
Australia, Brazil, South Africa, the US and even Antarctica!
Midnight Oil formed in 1976 and split up
in 2002. In 2010, their album Diesel and Dust was ranked No. 1 in
The 100 Best Australian Albums.
They reformed in 2009 performing two
headline shows in Canberra before doing the Sound Relief concert in Melbourne.

The event was held simultaneously with a
